The convincing winner of the first leg Filipino Barlo A Nadera ran out of gas. He played only three decisive games and drew the rest. His overall score was less than 50%. The championship trophy belonged to Vietnamese IM Từ Hoàng Thông who won six games. Indonesian FM Irwanto Sadikin inflicted his only loss.
Failed to get IM norm in the first leg FM Denny Juswanto determined to not miss in the second one. He finally prevailed. Other IM norm gainers were Australian FM Leonid Sandler and two host players FM Bobby Kurniawan and Irwanto.
The player who capitalized the most from the circuit was Bobby Kurniawan. He grabbed IM norm twice. According to FIDE regulations in order to get an IM title, a player had to score IM norms in at least 24 games. The total games he played from the two legs was a perfect fit. From the rating side Bobby exceeded the requirement. He gained at least 75 points of rating. Bobby transformed himself from a mediocre FM to an IM with rating 2400+ in less than three weeks! A record that was hard to break.
